Who said that an environmental horror film couldn't be didactic and spooky at the same time? In The Last Winter, Larry Fessenden's B-movie Arctic chiller (it's like the 1951 The Thing with more ethereal demons), life slowly unravels for a team of oil-company workers who are out to establish an Alaskan drilling station. Are the mishaps merely accidents? Or is the tundra, unfrozen by global warming, taking its vengeance? Die-hard greenies may find this as unsettling as it's meant to be. For everyone else, it's closer to an atmospheric act of recycling. B
